Budgeting Handbook for Texas Counties
The annual budget is the top financial responsibility for local governments. The Budgeting Handbook for Texas Counties is designed to help counties improve their accounting and financial reporting.
This guide is designed to assist county officials with the development of accounting procedures custom-fit to the county's needs.
Use the guide to:
- provide taxpayers with a clear picture of where the money goes;
- identify the best strategies to get a jumpstart on next year's budget process and engage the public every step of the way; and
- develop a budget that goes beyond bare numbers and acts as a barometer for your county's financial health.
